Nowruz (Persian New Year) celebrates spring and renewal across a number of cultures, from Iran and Kurdistan to Afghanistan and Los Angeles. This event will link the spirit of Nowruz to the worldwide quest for a renewal of society that would overcome and replace capitalism and other forms of oppression. Doing so will require hard work, hard thinking, and a celebratory, global humanist spirit. That is what we will be evoking at this event.
